In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, players can obtain the powerful Pokémon, Lucario. Lucario is a Fighting and Steel-type Pokémon that evolves from Riolu (high friendship during the day). Lucario has a great pool of moves and great stats to back it up.

Lucario’s Steel and Fighting-type means that most of his best moves are also Steel and Fighting-type. This is because S.T.A.B. (Same Type Attack Bonus) gives certain moves increased damage in battle if the Pokémon using it is of the same type. Lucario’s best moves are Close Combat, Dragon Pulse, Aura Sphere, and Crunch.
